The lawful use of a building existing at the time of the adoption of this Chapter (May 18, 1970) or an amendment hereto may be continued even though such use does not conform with the provisions hereof. If no structural alterations are made, a non-conforming use of a building may be changed to another non-conforming use of the same or more restricted classifications. The foregoing provisions shall also apply to non-conforming uses in districts as may be hereafter changed. Whenever a non-conforming use of a building has been changed to a more restricted use or to a conforming use, such use shall not thereafter be changed to a less restricted use.

All legal existing occupied mobile and/or manufactured homes located in the City shall be permitted to remain in place so long as occupied so as not to violate nuisance and safety ordinances.

Such a mobile and/or manufactured home shall not be required to conform to the site, placement, width, setback or consistency with neighborhood requirements of Article VII of this Chapter, but shall be permitted only so long as good faith efforts are underway to complete reconstruction of the original dwelling, not to exceed twelve (12) months, at which time the mobile and/or manufactured home shall be removed.
